CIPD
I have heard of cancer agents being used to help with sign and symptoms of CIPD.  Exactly which agents are used and at what dose/frequency. What is their proposed mechanism of action?
Also how is methotrexate used - dose, frequency, mechanism of action?   thanks, chris

The standard treatments for chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP) are intravenous immune globulin, steroids, and plasma exchange. If patients fail these therapies then immune modulating agents such as azathioprine, cyclosporine and cyclophosphamide have been used. The doses and frequency vary from patient to patient depending upon weight, other medical conditions, other medications, and renal and liver function. I would encourage you to obtain an appointment with your neurologist to discuss these options. Good luck.
